It is not difficult to remove the unit from the faring, but the bolts, which need to be removed, can be difficult to find. On some models, rubber trim must be removed and on other models, complete trim panels need to be removed. The headlight unit is plastic and secured to the faring with four bolts that have spacers inserted between the plastic enclosure and the faring. Inside the headlight unit are four bulbs, two H4 headlight bulbs and two side/running-light bulbs.
The H4 headlight bulb is both an automotive and motorcycle replacement bulb. The three-prong base style of this bulb -- P43T -- defines both the three-prong configuration and dimensions. An additional shim, EC02510, is required on Goldwing motorcycles with headlight bulbs having 45/45 watt stamped on the bulb. It is not required or other Goldwing 1500 motorcycles. The stock headlight bulb is rated at 60/55 watts. Any replacement bulb should not exceed this 60/55-watt rating. This headlight bulb is a standard 12V headlight bulb.

When handling this bulb, avoid touching the glass part of the bulb with your fingertips. Your fingertips may leave an oil residue on the bulb that can shorten the bulb's life.
